How to Make Teriyaki Chicken


  1. rinse chicken and set aside.
  2. combine soy sauce and water with brown sugar and honey. stir until sugars are all dissolved.
  3. peel garlic and ginger and finely grate into soy sauce and sweeteners. add the zest of whole lemon and then the juice of the lemon.
  4. add chicken to marinade and let sit for at least 6 hours. I often let it sit overnight.
  5. Heat grill to 400 degrees. Cook chicken about 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is done.
  6. can be served with a side of rice, steamed or fried OR we like to make sandwiches with them.
  7. I have also taken the marinated chicken and cut it up to use as a stir fry. Pork chops can also be substituted for the chicken.
